In Seventh grade we had a career day. I think I remember that we had to sign-up ahead of time for a certain number of classes to participate in and learn about a few different jobs. I can't tell you what classes I sat in on. All I can remember was being the weirdo that was practicing her crochet with some really ugly, coarse, orange yarn.
Funny thing is, I really have turned that skill into a career!
It never would of crossed my mind that I could some day become a professional crocheter and all around DIY crafter. But here I am, running an educational site, and teaching my workshops geared toward gaining creative skills. How amazing is that?1
Don't pooh pooh your natural interests. I can tell you that every talent I now possess did not start as something I was naturally good at. It was just something I had a desire to learn. Not everything I have tried has turned into a talent. For instance, from sixth grade to ninth grade I played the trumpet. Most of the time I was first or second chair. I still have my trumpet, but I no longer have such a talent. Getting braces on my bottom teeth changed my ability to form the proper lips to create quality sound. My teacher put me on a baritone for the rest of the semester. And, while I actually found that I liked the baritone better-the next year I gave up band and went to Choir.
Moral: Not all interest turn into talents, but one might turn into a career!
